Have you heard about the 2.6 challenge?
The 2.6 challenge started on 26th April – the day when the London Marathon would have taken place.
Everyone is invited to take part and do something fun to raise money for charity.
You definitely don’t need to run a marathon (although you can if you like).
You can do anything that involves the numbers 26 or 2.6. It can be as easy or as challenging as you like. Here’s some ideas:
- Complete 2.6 laps of Richmond or Bushy Park (walk, run, bike, skate – bikes might not be allowed yet though)
- Bake 26 cakes (what you do with them is up to you!)
- Draw 26 rainbow pictures for 26 of your neighbours to put in their windows
- Hold plank pose for a minute once a day for 26 days
Or how about cycling 26 miles? That’s what our former client and trustee, Scotty McLeod is doing. In fact he inspired us to encourage you to do something too!
